Currently I don't know of any except the kit made by a AUS company. www.ProTurbokits in San Antonio is looking to do a twin turbo kit for the GTO. They are currently looking for a donor car.

I keep reading about all these manufacturers looking for donor cars. I guess live in the wrong area of the country. The only thing free I can get around here for my car is a GTO brochure.

Pro Turbo Kit's design is a twin system that will make more power then the INCON derived LPE kit. Also it will use full tubular headers instead of manifolds, 3" downpipes, front mount air to air Intercooler and the use of up to the SC63GT turbos which are rated about 1400hp for the pair.

That looks like the RPMotorsports kit. Nice looking kit but 20K is hard to come by.

Pro Turbo is still looking for a GTO donor car and the price I was given was a fraction of any other turbo setup out there.

That Horsepower Factory site is actually a brand name for Amberly Autos who many people down here know about. They are devolping a twin turbo kit for the LS1 and it is pretty stealth with the turbos being mounted lower in the engine bay and it racked up 611rwhp on the Summernats dyno with a stock engine pump gas and only 10Psi boost.

I saw photos of a turbo Holden during a Holden vs Ford show down there, but in the pic the turbo looked like it was only 2" from the steering rack boot. If that is the case, I don't want that much heat next to my steering rack/fluid... I'd opt for a different location, personally.

However, I would rather have a turbo than a supercharger (not that there is anything wrong w/ a supercharger) because I love the sound of that whistle as it spools up.
